To get audio to multiple speakers, use an app such as AmpMe, Bose Connect, or a few from Ultimate Ears, as well as Bluetooth 5, which send audio to two devices at once. Instructions in this article apply to Bluetooth speakers connected to Android, Amazon Echo, or Google Home devices. Use AmpMe to Connect Multiple Bluetooth Speakers There are few apps that connect multiple Bluetooth devices, including AmpMe, Bose Connect, and Ultimate Ears. AmpMe is the most versatile, as it's not brand-specific, while the Bose and Ultimate Ears apps require the respective company's Bluetooth speakers. AmpMe syncs smartphones and Bluetooth speakers together to stream audio from SoundCloud, Spotify, YouTube, or your media library. Users can create or join parties on any of these platforms, and sync with unlimited devices. Your smartphone can only connect to one speaker, so you'll need participation from friends and family to make it work. The person who creates the party controls the music, but other users can send song requests using the app's chat feature. The host can also turn on the Guest as DJ feature which lets other participants add songs to the queue. After you download the app, link it to either your Facebook or Google account, then see if any of your contacts are on AmpMe, or turn on location services and find a party near you. To start a party: Tap the Plus (+). Select the service (Spotify, YouTube, etc.), then tap Connect. Tap Connect. Log in to your account. Choose or create a playlist. Invite people to your party who can join remotely, or invite them over. Use Audio Company Apps to Connect Multiple Bluetooth Speakers With the Bose Connect and Ultimate Ears apps, you can pair a smartphone with two speakers each, but only on particular models. Bose Connect works with Bose speakers and headphones, and a Party Mode feature streams audio to two headphones or two speakers at once. The app's Google Play and App Store pages list compatible devices. Ultimate Ears has two apps that stream audio to multiple speakers: Boom and MegaBoom, which corresponds to two lines of compatible speakers. These apps have a feature called PartyUp that connects over 50 Boom 2 or MegaBoom speakers together. Use Samsung's Dual Audio Feature If you have a Samsung Galaxy S8, S+, or newer model, take advantage of the company's Bluetooth Dual Audio, which works with most Bluetooth speakers and headphones; Bluetooth 5 isn't required. Samsung To enable this feature: Go to Settings > Connections > Bluetooth. In Android Pie, tap Advanced. In earlier Android versions, tap the menu icon (3 vertical dots) in the upper-right corner. Turn on the Dual Audio toggle switch. To use Dual Audio, pair the phone with two speakers, two headphones, or one of each, and audio will stream to both. If you add a third, the first paired device will be booted off. If you link your Samsung with two sets of headphones, only the first connected device can manage playback using on-headphone media controls. You may also encounter Bluetooth speakers that are out of sync, so this feature is best for speakers located in separate rooms. Use HomePod Stereo Pair Apple has a similar feature to Samsung's Dual Audio called HomePod Stereo Pair that allows users to pair an iPhone or Mac with two Homepod speakers.. HomePod Stereo Pair requires an iPhone running at least iOS 11.4 or a Mac with macOS Mojave or later. You'll also need to HomePod speakers running iOS 11.4 or later. When you set up a HomePod in the same room as another one, you'll get an option to use the speakers as a stereo pair. You can also use the Home app to set up this feature on an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac. In either case, both HomePods must be in the same room to pair them. Open the Home app, double-click or press and hold HomePod, then click or tap Settings. Click or tap Create Stereo Pair. Select a second HomePod. You'll see two HomePod icons in the app. Tap or click a HomePod to map it to the correct channel (right and left). Click or tap Back, then Done.
